Everyone's talking about CESA 10

"With the ever-changing landscape of special education law and the significant increase in high needs cases, it became quite clear that there was a real need by our district to purchase more time for special education from CESA 10. Even though our total enrollment continues to decrease, we have experienced increasing numbers of kids requiring special education services. Having assistance in coordinating services for these kids, and for our staff is vital in helping our district to meet these kids’ social, emotional, and intellectual needs. CESA 10 staff also helps coordinate counseling services by counseling service providers both inside of school and outside of school to help kids get the mental health services from which our kids and their families can greatly benefit. There is certainly an ever growing need for all of these services. Our CESA 10 Director of Special Education is a key member of our school team that provides hope and support to our neediest kids."
